11.10.19, Paying Attention in a Distracted World, Rev. Kent Matthies

Schools, religious organizations, families – all are impacted by less capacity to concentrate. We are paying a price, because as the Buddhist sutras say, when we do develop a capacity for concentration, we improve our chances for “wisdom, transformation, compassion and bliss.” How might we better pay attention?
